These trivets are handmade with natural Navajo Churro wool. I hand spin and weave the yarn myself. Wool is naturally flame-resistant and insulative, making it a perfect choice to protect your kitchen surfaces or tables from hot cookware. They also are great to place under a vase or bowl to protect your table from scratches.
The leather tag can be replaced with a vegan tag or removed completely. Please let me know in the order notes.
Navajo-Churro sheep are a heritage breed of sheep originally developed by the Diné (Navajo) people in the Southwest US. These sheep are the oldest breed in North America and have existed for hundreds of years but are classified as threatened with extinction by The Livestock Conservancy. I source my wool from small farms and shops that support Diné (Navajo) shepherds to ensure a fair and honorable price for their wool and help them sustain their flocks of Navajo-Churro sheep.
Option 1: Natural light gray, approx. 9″x 9″
Option 2: Natural charcoal, approx. 9″x 9″
Option 3: Two tone natural charcoal and light gray, approx. 9″x 9″
Option 4: Natural charcoal with yellow hand dyed churro yarn, approx. 9″x 9″
Option 5: Synthetic felt backing
I offer a backing as optional which strengthens the weave structure, but since the backing is a synthetic felt and some prefer a natural product, you will need to purchase this option separately.
Spot cleaning is recommended. If you find the need for washing, use cold water and gently wash and air dry. Use a warm iron on the wool setting if pressing is needed.
** Note: I always refund postage overages
